Looks like Kendall Jenner has an unexpected fashion icon -- 35-year-old Paris Hilton.
Kendall celebrated her 21st birthday at Delilah restaurant in West Hollywood, California, on Wednesday night, where she turned heads in a sparkly, sequin mini dress that flaunted her supermodel physique. But if the dress looks familiar to you, there's a good reason -- Paris wore almost the same look for her own 21st birthday back in May 2002.
Kendall even accessorized in a similar blingy fashion with a wraparound necklace, while Paris rocked a choker with her own backless frock 14 years ago.
The brunette beauty had no issue admitting to her style inspiration, Instagramming pictures of her show-stopping party outfit on Thursday with the caption, "Vintage Paris Hilton vibes. 21 21."
Kendall's dress was custom made for her by designer Antoine Salameh, under his brand LaBourjoisie. Salameh tells WWD that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star's dress took two weeks to create, and that the model herself sent over reference images for what she wanted it to look like.
"We went off of Kendall’s Twenties reference and we wanted to give her a modern take on it; like Kendall, the dress is timeless and chic," Salameh tells the magazine. "She sent over reference images and I took it from there. It’s young, sexy and fun.”
… Clearly, now we know exactly who Kendall was channeling!
Interestingly enough, Kendall's older sister, 36-year-old Kim Kardashian West, famously started off as Paris' personal assistant before becoming arguably the most famous reality star ever.
"We've known each other since we were little girls, we've always been friends," Paris told Yahoo Style about Kim last April. "It's nice to inspire people, so yeah, I'm really proud of her and what she's done though."
